I've been using OpenGL hardware acceleration in programs such as Adobe Photoshop CS4 and Adobe After Effects CS4. I've noticed that recently the options for OpenGL previews are disabled because my graphics card seems to not support OpenGL - but that doesn't make any sense whatsoever.

I know for a fact that my graphics card does have support for OpenGL and it worked before. I checked for driver updates just the other day. Anybody know what's going on?

I checked for driver updates just the other day

Were there updates? This may explain it.

Nope. My driver was already up to date and so was Catalyst Control Center. – Aznfin Apr 5 '10 at 18:17
